Superficial BCC Features

Lobule like protrusion of basal cells confined to a nest structure originating from the Stratum Basale/ DEJ Peripheral boundary in superficial types is always more prominent on dermis facing side of nest DEJ alteration is always prominent in superficial nests Dermis protruding growth of the basal layer disrupts the expected undulating pattern of the DEJ […]

Nodular BCC Features

Nodular basal cell nests have minimal connection to the epidermis with the main nest mass primarily localised within the papillary dermis or superficial reticular dermis Nodular basal cell nests typically present as ovoid structures with a granular texture due to cell composition Hyporeflectivity due to the basal cells possessing less intracellular keratin All basal nests […]
